Please note: Condition 16 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) is not applicable to this lot

Very good vintage condition. The bag has been refreshed at the Hermès spa. Corners and edges have been resealed. No marks on outer. One corner nearly worn. The handle joins are weakening (it was decided not to replace them - but this can be done by Hermès or a bag repair specialist). No marks on outer nor inner. Note that with age, the leather is slightly stiffened.
